BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, USA, November 30, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — Just because you are talented and capable doesn’t mean you possess the necessary skills to be a leader. Even if you’ve climbed the corporate ladder to senior management, you may still have blind spots with regard to interpersonal communication, presentation, communicating a message. Thankfully, these are skills that can be developed.
Jamie Levinson is the president of Jamie Levinson Consulting, an executive coaching and leadership training services practice serving the greater New York metropolitan area. Levinson works with leaders, primarily women, to help them maximize their potential to be even more successful within their organizations.
“My clients are talented people whom the organization has identified as potential leaders to be promoted or given greater responsibility,” says Levinson. “These are not poor performers by any means, but perhaps there are skills they need to develop in order to move to that next level."
With over 20 years of experience in learning and development in financial services companies, Levinson creates a trusted and collaborative partnership that empowers her clients to be their best selves, to learn, and create a better future for themselves as leaders. Levinson says what makes her work different from other kinds of coaching, is that the organization is a stakeholder in the process. The focus is on improving the client’s ability to be more effective.
“What I bring to the coaching relationship is authenticity and a willingness to be vulnerable,” says Levinson. “I listen in a way that allows people to build trust with me very quickly. There are a lot of people doing this work, but I build a relationship with my clients through a comfort with myself. You need that trust and connectedness to do this kind of work.”
Levinson spent the early part of her career as a counselor before moving into corporate America, primarily in the field of financial services, to work with leaders, working as a group facilitator. She discovered that working one-on-one with leaders in a large organization was something she felt passionate about so she decided to go back to her roots and the one-on-one relationships. It was then that she became certified as an Executive Coach through iCoachNY, an Executive Coaching program at the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College (CUNY).
“I’ve really come full circle. It’s a different population, of course. I’m working with talented men and women who are making a tremendous change as a result of the coaching. They’re having great results and happier work lives and they are happier in general.”
Levinson says the benefit for her clients is that they are able to move to the next level, whether it’s a promotion, or assuming greater responsibility. Levinson will often ask questions that challenge her clients’ pre-existing beliefs and help them explore their current way of thinking about themselves and their situation.
“I address not just the ‘what,’ but the ‘who’ of the client. The ‘who’ is the totality of the person and their strengths, the things that make them great,” says Levinson. “So I’m most proud when I see my clients perform in a way that demonstrates their belief in themselves. Women have grown the confidence to take risks and do things differently. I love to see them take initiative to make changes.”
